Julian Edelman set to make first free agent visit with 49ers

Julian Edelman will take his first official free agent visit Friday when he visits the Niners.
The wide receiver, who caught a team-high 105 passes last year for the Patriots (to go along with 1,056 yards and six touchdowns, all of which were career-highs), has reportedly turned down a three-year offer from the Patriots. He’s also reportedly being recruited to the Browns by quarterback Brian Hoyer, a former New England teammate.
The 5-foot-10, 198-pounder is a former college quarterback who made the switch to receiver after New England took him in the seventh round of the 2009 draft. The 27-year-old has played five years in the league, all with New England, and has 174 career receptions to go along with 1,770 yards and 10 touchdowns.
